My TMJ has flared up again... Prayers for the pain...
« on: October 23, 2010, 10:11:29 AM »
I have TMJ and it has been acting up for the past week. I finally got anti-biotics and vicodine yesterday and have been taking them. The pain ranges from okay (or non-existent if i'm medicated enough) to pretty bad. It is mainly in my lower jaw and near my ear.

Prayers that it may calm down and heal fast and the pain may subside...

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Thank you for your prayers!

I went to Urgent Care on Saturday, had the Doctor check me out and he gave me a shot of pain medication as well as an additional prescription of medication that has helped tremendously with the pain.

Also on Thursday my Dentist prescribed painkillers and anti-biotics.

Hopefully things will start getting better as the pain is subsiding (hopefully not just due to the painkillers) somewhat and all I probably have left to do is get an x-ray of my jaw/mouth to make sure things are okay.

Again, Thank you for your prayers!

Turns out it was a tooth that needed a root canal done... Got part of the root canal done today and the rest will be finished in a week.

That is... The tooth set off my TMJ...
